As just agreed on irc, we want to be able to set Thunderbird's start page content to one of the following URLs: http://live.mozillamessaging.com/%APP%/start?locale=%LOCALE%version=%VERSION%&os=%OS%&buildid=%APPBUILDID% where "start" may be replaced by "firstrun" or "whatsnew" On current Thunderbird trunk (my build) this evaluates to: http://live.mozillamessaging.com/thunderbird/start?locale=en-US&version=3.0b1pre&os=Darwin&buildid=20080818190226 I expect that firstrun/whatsnew pages may redirect to the start pages, different locales (or subsets) may also redirect to en-US. etc etc It'd be nice if we could have something like all builds with "pre" in their title redirect to one dev start page as well.
http://live.mozillamessaging.com/thunderbird/start?[xxx] is currently up and running, and just blindly redirecting requests back to: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/3.0a2/start/ for the time being, as we don't exactly have content for specific builds quite yet. Once needs are clarified, I'll hack together a redirector that implements some 'brains' and place it in svn.mozilla.org (once I get access to id) [note: this included a DNS change @2008082601 that is not yet fully propagated]
I think what needs to happen now is we need a default start page for nightly builds, and we'll want something for beta; cc'ing Rafael. Worst case, if we want to get something running we could always just take the existing chrome start page and host that. I'm thinking its probably worth getting this switched over reasonably soon so that we can start seeing the effect from the nightlies before getting to the beta.

So as per my email, this needs to be redirected to: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/nightly/start/ once the new website backend is up and running and the changes moved across.
